65 nm Celeron Ds coming May 28
Intel has some 65 nm Celeron Ds scheduled for a May 28 launch, according
to a report
by DigiTimes. The processors will be built on the same Cedar Mill
core as Intel's 65 nm Pentium 4 6x1 chips, and have a thermal
design power of 65 W, down from 73-84 W for current 90 nm Prescott-based
Celerons. According to DigiTimes, Intel will release two 65nm Celeron D
chips on May 28: a 3.2 GHz Celeron D 352 and a 3.33 GHz Celeron D 356.
The company is also expected to unveil a 3.46 GHz Celeron D 360 some
time between July and September. All three CPUs will feature a
533 MHz front side bus and 512 KB of L2 cache—twice the cache of
current Prescott-based Celeron Ds.
Regarding prices, DigiTimes says the Celeron D 352, 356, and 360 will cost
$79, $89, and $103, respectively. The chips will likely compete against
AMD's Sempron 3000+, 3200+, and 3400+ processors, which AMD currently
sells for $77, $87, and $97.
